4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster at the brewery. Black color with nice beige head. Coffee chocolate aroma, like I love it. More coffee chocolate in the taste, roasted malts, full taste but stays dry, bitter chocolate/espresso finish. Huge drinkability for this ABV. Just feels a bit too fresh, could be more capturing. With a bit more thickness this would be absolutely over the top. But like this it is already extremely good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog Bristol. A deep brown colour with a thick mocha head. Aroma of fresh coffee beans, some roasted malts, vanilla, dark chocolate, liquorice and subtle tobacco. Taste of espresso, dark chocolate, some vanilla, slight alcohol, liquorice, nuts and a little pepper. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A warming, roasted, peppery hop bitterness in the finish. A nice imperial porter, It’s lighter on the tongue than a stout but just has flavourful, great combination of coffee and vanilla.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Huge spicy pepper coffee aroma. Vanilla dominates the flavor, coffee, delight ashy, astringent. No balance, little beer character.
